Series Information

Description: The present volume reexamines both ancient Christian and Jewish portrayals of outsiders. In what ways, both positive and negative, do ancient writers interact with and relate to those outside of their ethnicity or religious tradition? This volume devotes itself to the methodological questions surrounding the use of diverse ancient sources for the construction of the other. The goal is to shed new light on ancient interactions between different religious groups in order to describe more accurately these relationships. Contributors: Michal Bar-Asher Siegal, Albert I. Baumgarten, Katell Berthelot, Patricia A. Duncan, Nathan Eubank, Isaiah M. Gafni, Wolfgang Grunstaudl, Christine Hayes, Tobias Nicklas, Matthew Thiessen, Haim Weiss

Subjects: Methods, Theological Approaches, Comparative Religion, Judaism, Christianity, Other Methods
